EZULWINI – The presence of Soul Brothers in the country has brought joy to five aspiring organ instrument players.


Soul Brothers leader Moses ‘Blackmoses’ Ngwenya has picked five aspiring musician who will be taught how to play the instrument.
The lucky five were picked from the country’s different Mbhaqanga music singing groups. Actually Ngwenya has already started teaching the aspiring organ players as their lessons started on Monday.


Their classes were held at the Timbali Lodge and continued until Wednesday.  The course will continue until they master how to play the organ such that the music fits the style of the real Mbhaqanga music.


Ngwenya will not only end by teaching them how to play but will also give them an organ worth E60 000 which they will use during their rehearsals.  The arrangement is that the organ will be brought into the country and be kept in a safe place where they will all have access to it.  The five were unveiled during a press conference held at Timbali Lodge on Wednesday afternoon.  Ngwenya said he was happy to see such talent in the country saying he felt there was a need to expose such talent. 


“These five are talented and they can be among the country’s best organ players,” he said. He said one of the reasons why they decided as Soul Brothers to come to the country and host workshops was because they noted that there were a number of people who were interested in their music.  Ngwenya said with the support they have been receiving all these years in the country, they felt the only way to give back to the country’s music lovers would be to teach the organ players.  “We have already identified them and the lessons have started.
